Abstract : Non-linear propagation studies are extended to a magneto-ionic medium; the limitation being, that all wave normals have been assumed to be parallel. The general theory, involving arbitrary wave normals, will be dealt with in a forthcoming eport. It is shown that, as expected, travel ling wave resonances occur in the magneto-ionic medium, not only between waves of the same kind (e.g. between waves of ordinary polarization) but equally frequently between waves of opposite kinds. From the non-linear interaction point of view there, thus, is not much difference, at least in principle, between the ordinary and extraordinary waves. One also finds, which is of interest in this connection, that the second order non-linear waves are characterized by two different kinds of polarization which become equal only at travelling wave resonance.
